When it comes to adventure and thrill, nothing defines these terms better than sports do. The speed, the anxiety and the undying urge to see your favourite emerge as the winner makes sports races one of the most anticipated and looked forward to activities. The Monaco Grand Prix is one such event which is held once every year. This Formula One race has its venue set as the Circuit de Monaco which has earned a lot of praise for its appropriate structuring for this sport. Started in 1929, this event today is one of the most prestigious races in the world. In fact the race has gained a lot of fame at the expense of its very venue; the circuit has been referred to as an exceptional location of glamour and prestige.

This expensive affair is coming at your doorstep for grabs and how? Well, Johnnie Walker, the premium Scotch whiskey brand is giving away one lucky Gold Pass Holder and a friend of the winner a much sought-after opportunity to become an integral part of the Monaco Grand Prix. Step Inside The Circuit at the Monaco Grand Prix 2012 will enable you to relish the benefits of an all-expenses-paid trip to the Monaco race weekend scheduled from 25-27 May. The experience is one of a kind and you will be one of the few people who can witness the grand event from a yacht. It's not just that but you also get the golden chance to meet the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes drivers and will be invited to some of the most exclusive parties.

How to Avail of this Opportunity?
To be able to enrol yourself for the Step Inside the Circuit campaign, you need to be a holder of the Johnnie Walker Gold Pass. This is your passport to reach the Monaco grand Prix. If you aren't an existing pass holder then you can sign up for the same on Johnnie Walker's India page on Facebook. The offer stands open only till April 22 so it's time you become a part of this fabulous deal.

So What Exactly is the Race All About?
Held at a narrow course designed and laid out in the charming and enthralling streets of Monaco, it is marked with several elevation changes and tight corners. What makes it one of the most challenging tracks in Formula One is the very presence of a tunnel. Now who can escape that barrier? Though the track is recorded to give low average speeds, it is considered as a danger racing zone with the twists and turns that the racers have to pass to reach the target.

What makes it truly unique is that attribute that it is the only Grand Prix that doesn't abide by the FIA's mandated 305kn minimum race distance. Now isn't that something to its credit?
